Don't do this.  If you want to do something like this, set up a member
server and run Samba with CTDB.

CTDB is not compatible with being an AD DC, and so must be run on a
member server node.  

Samba running on multiple nodes of a cluster or remote file system
(including NFS) without CTDB will corrupt files, as otherwise there is
no shared locking.
